A discordant struggle between sisters plays out in a world where the virtual and real often converge. (c) Monterey Media

January 31, 2014:Critics Consensus: That Awkward Moment When Your Movie is Rotten
This week at the movies, we've got three single bros (That Awkward Moment, starring Zac Efron and...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Ms. Sevigny is the unsteady center of a movie that uses awkward silences, cryptic dialogue and self-consciously arty images to signify emotional limbo.
The dialogue is so vague, and the plot so minimal, it all feels like a rather pointless exercise.
Questions mount and answers are slim, distracted by a score that veers from synth to symphonic.
I could no more tell you what it's trying to say than I could successfully stow away on the first space shuttle to Saturn, although I promise you that trip would be half as long.
We're stuck watching two normally interesting performers moodily flail about, trying to lend weight to an enterprise that revels in tedious art-house opacity.
Gorgeous and haunting, inscrutable but rewarding of scrutiny, writer-director M. Blash's The Wait achieves the rare distinction of being warm and unsettling at the same time ...
Blash marshals considerable atmospheric forces, but his film collapses under the weight of oblique logic and plotting, lacking in either effective emotional payoff or the more skilled observational touch of a rumination on loss.
By the end, audiences will most likely feel as if they've been locked out of the drama that's presumably unfolding right in front of them.
